Harris English shot a final-round 5-under 65, then edged Kramer Hickok in a playoff to win the 2021 Travelers Championship.

The 31-year old Georgia native finished his final round with one bogey and six birdies, highlighted by a 28-foot birdie on the 18th to reach 13 under.

Hickok (67) joined English at 13 under with his own birdie on the 18th hole to force overtime.

The two were lights out for the entirety of the playoff, each making clutch putt after clutch putt until English ended it with a lengthy putt on the eighth overtime hole.

For his second PGA Tour victory of the season, English earned $1,332,000 and 500 FedExCup points. He will move to No. 2 in the FedExCup standings and fifth on the money list.

For his second-place finish, Hickok earned $806,600 and 300 FedExCup points. He will move to No. 69 in the FedExCup standings and 76th on the money list.
